William Golding's most light-hearted novel.
First edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 19 × 12.5cm, 217pp.
Oliver is eighteen, and wants to enjoy himself before going to university. But this is the 1920s, and he lives in Stilbourne, a small English country town, where everyone knows what everyone else is getting up to, and where love, lust and rebellion are closely followed by revenge and embarrassment.
The book itself is in very good condition, with a little tanning to the page edges. The wrapper has light wear but is complete and now within a protective sleeve.
